Power Sonic
Houve um esforço por encerrar a carreira do ouriço no mundo dos 8 e 16 bits com dois games que pudessem marcar a transição de gerações. No Mega Drive isso ficou a cabo com o Sonic 3D Blast, no qual o Sonic poderia se mover em todas as direções; e no mundo do 8 bits com Sonic Blast, que trazia Knuckles como jogável, e um conceito de gráfico menos cartunizado e mais sóbrio, além de sprites em uma espécie de pseudo-3D. A fórmula foi interessante, mas não agradou a todos. Sonic Blast não chegou a ser um game que tenha despertado atenção significativa por parte dos fãs.

Aside from the level designs, the real problem with this game is the way it plays. Thanks to the graphics the game feels sluggish, which is about the worst thing you can say to a fast-paced 2D platformer. Aspect did manage to get a few things right (double jumping, the way you only lose a few rings when you get hit, etc.), but the game just never feels right. I'm sure if Aspect had a little more time and more powerful hardware this could have been a spectacular game, but as it is this is one of those Sonic games you can completely avoid. This Game Gear game is for collectors only.
